    I ordered a complete interior for the restoration from Legendary for my 1965 Sport Fury but the light blue, pinpoint is no longer being provided by them. This was the original color to the top, Indy 500 Convertible, and I am keeping everything original. I have searched a number of sites trying to locate this top. Anyone have any suggestions as to where one might source? My current options are dark blue, white or black if I can't locate one.

    I ordered the correct white top with white backing for my '65 300 from SMS. They had the material and stitched it up. I'd be shocked if they didn't have it but be prepared to wait.

    SMS sources their material from HAARTZ who no longer is producing this color. Thanks.

    Have you tried Kee top. They have the tops and I believe will dye them to the color of your choice.

    They also have stock of original material so they may have it. My material was not from Haartz.

    Checked their site and they don't have! Special order and they only have runs of 500 yards or more.

    Thanks! I called and they have the material and can produce the top. Guess you can't believe everything on the web site!

    Awesome! Whatever lead time they quoted you, triple or quadruple it. Their products are top notch but their order fulfillment is not.

    Claimed it would ship in 14-21 days but I don't need for 2-3 months, if I am lucky!
